Without cream, cow’s milk or goat cheese, are you afraid of running out of smoothness and flavor? Whether with vegetable milks, various creams, whipped cream, margarines, yogurts and vegetable cheeses, a multitude of alternatives are available to you. In addition, soybeans, almonds, hazelnuts or even cereals effectively replace dairy products.
